Gogo Makes Fortune 'Future 50' List of Companies with Best Prospects for Growth


CHICAGO, Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the leading global provider of broadband connectivity products and services for aviation, has made Fortune's "Future 50" list of companies best positioned for strong future growth.

Fortune worked together with the Boston Consulting Group to create the list. To identify the Future 50, Boston Consulting Group examined 2,300 publicly traded U.S. companies and reviewed 15 years of financial results through year-end 2016. They divided the companies into two different groups—those above $20 billion in market value at the time of the screening and those below.

"We are very proud to have been selected to the inaugural Future 50 list as it validates our leadership and innovation as the Inflight Internet company," said Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO.  "We are connecting aircraft and leveraging that connectivity to develop cutting edge products and services that engage passengers and help our aviation partners run a safer and more efficient operation. Our latest technology innovations like 2Ku have us well positioned to fuel future growth."

The methodology has two pillars: Market potential and company capacity.  Market potential is measured as a company's expected future growth as determined by the financial markets. This is determined by calculating the present value of its growth opportunities, which represents the proportion of market value that is not attributable to the earnings power of the existing assets and business model. That accounts for 50 percent of the overall score.

The other 50 percent of each company's score is the measure of its capacity to deliver on that potential. This is assessed by a score comprising 14 factors, which were drawn from a larger group of variables which were tested and calibrated against historical data for their ability to predict long-term growth. These were grouped in four clusters: strategy, technology and investment, people and structure.
